Mystified, aka Thomas Park, remains a prolific artist who specializes in creating songs and audio collages from sounds he finds at his Saint Louis apartment or from surrounding neighborhoods...

|Jos Smolders - Hemel (for KM Krebs) [nt092] - Jos Smolders|
This new work by Jos Smolders is part of his "beeld-kleur" (image-color) series, specifically aimed at "pictorial music" or repesentative music, as opposed to his usually non-figurative compositions. Hemel is dutch for "sky" but also for "heaven." Says Jos: "I sometimes think of Kevin's music as heavenly. Also, his earlier radio stuff reminded me of the aether, up up up in the sky..." * For full artwork and information please visit the official album page on notype.com.

Continuing a development of character, and the way it corresponds with atmosphere, "Vagabond" is lighter than "Transient", but not as nautically jolly as "Pirate". The album finds a happy medium, full of drones, mesmerizing patterns, and slices of experimental electronica. Mystified feels that "Vagabond" works especailly well as a total experience, and hopes that listeners will be able to enjoy it in totality-- and if not, that they will be able at least to think of the album as a whole...

|Phil Baker -Shagga Ep(EM4) - Phil Baker|
Here he is again. Phil Baker rocks. A new EP from the groovemaster from the States. On this release you find 3 tracks. The first Shagga is reggae-influenced, The second Morning Train is a very monotone dark minimal track. Imaging sitting in the last metro to the Bronx after a mindblowing party. The last one is Stacker is a skizofrenic almost off-melodic track made on a misty confusing day.

Whatever echoes fibrillate in the undulations of our neuronal fields? Memory faces up to itself in this one question: how did memory bring us here? Memory, the forgotten one - under the sway of the scythe of bliss memory flexes over in synaptic delusion to the experience of senselessness that only audition can bestow.

|Christian Toonk - unison [cnv 24] - christian toonk|
The basic idea for "unison" is the phenomenon of binaural tones. When the distance between congruence frequencies is changed, pulsations occur. Here, Dutch artist Christian Toonk (vinculated to the Utrecht based collective Umatic among others projects) uses a self build instrument based on sinewave oscillators and feedback loops. The output is rewired to the input and provides a somewhat unpredictable datastream, by means of creating an opponent to interact to as in collaboration...

I'm trying to think of another word then sinister to describe this noise ambient piece by Denmarks Wäldchengarten, but it seems impossible to find any other way to explain it. Layers of drones, scrap metal, feedback and possibly even guitars meld together into a massive wall of noise terror. Maybe not abrassive, but sure as hell very uncomfortable. What better way to start the fall then to take a plunge into the oozing slime pit of Wäldchengarten?

|Asher - study for autumn .ep [cnv46] - asher thal-nir|
'Studies for Autumn' was made in the Fall of 2006 and presents itself as one of Asher's more melodic works. It was created from basic workings involving piano, brass bells and field recordings of the seasonal fall winds blowing through the trees. Amidst the static interchanges, we find a prelude to winter long past and, perhaps, a time never forgotten; left somewhere frozen in the dust that memory leaves behind.

Like the eponymous dwellings, the six segments of this work are deliberately unnatural and out of place; they exist as nebulous entities, storm clouds born of confusion - 'Their houses are supposed to be unlucky, and no one goes near ...

This is the second Musictrade album release from English electronica artist Softspace, following his Experiments at the Edge of Time [MT007, March 2006]. Where the debute album was built mostly on fairly light and uncomplicated synth material, this new album is definitely more experimental and ambivalent in nature. Synth-based material is still prominent but now it is intimately combined with field recording / foundsound material in the form of 'documentary soundscapes' and radiophonic style con...
